question and specifically on lew. bernie sanders has said he will not vote for him. he said in my view, we need a treasury secretary who is prepared to stand up to corporate america and their powerful lobbyists and fight for policies that protect the working families in our country. i do not believe mr. lew is that person. it is worth noting, in 2008 jack lew oversaw one of the most controversial branches of citigroup and there has been -- we talked about it yesterday. we're talking about wall street and the white house and the university system being the military industrial complex of our time, quoting gabe sherman from "new york magazine" piece. there is a pipeline between this stuff, and when you have a treasury secretary that's setting monetary policy, should he be someone that is theoretically in could ka hoots with the street? >> that strikes me as a crazy attack from bernie sanders because lew -- it is true that lew wrote for citigroup. he is probably the most liberal group of the cabinet. he has spent his whole career on the left of the democratic party. you know, he is also a libe
